860 regulations bite the dust

In his first six months as president, Donald Trump and his staff have chipped away at the icebergs of regulation blocking our path to economic liberty, killing or shelving 860 regulations.

But that pales compared to the 3,853 regulations Barack Obama and his Marxist minions added in his last year in office alone. Easily Obama added 25,000-plus regulations in his eight-year rule of foolishness.

What the hell were you dunderheads thinking when you elected that affirmative action baby president?

Trump on the other hand needs to get his offices and panels filled so we can have a full crew rolling back the rules.

From the Washington Examiner:
President Trump's administration, on orders to kill two regulations for every new one, ripped up the playbook during its first six months, eliminating 16 old rules for every new one, according to top officials.
"It's really the beginning of a kind of fundamental regulatory reform and a reorientation of where we're going with regulation," said Neomi Rao, the newly installed administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs in the Office of Management and Budget.
In a briefing with a handful of reporters, Rao laid out the administration's regulation agenda, declaring, "It's a're going to see a rollback of regulations."
Compare that to Barack the Bureaucrat.

From Forbes:
Today, Friday the 30th, is the last federal workday of 2016.
And the printed version of the Federal Register, the daily depository of all things regulatory, has topped off at 97,110 pages, by far an all time record.
Skips and blanks will lower the official count a tad later when the National Archives issues final data, but not by much.
That dwarfs last year's count of 80,260 pages, and it shatters the 2010 all-time record of 81,405 by 15,705 pages.
Indeed, the 2010 level was passed November 17, making each day since a new record-breaker.
Liberals are tiny minded people who want to ruin every aspect of your life.

If after six months you still want Hillary president, please go read someone else's blog.

  1. You are assuming a Hillary voter can read.

  2. Every single regulation should be held up and examined next to the U.S. Constitution. If it cannot be clearly shown to be a power delegated to the United States by the Constitution it should be immediately stricken from the Federal Register. - Elric

  3. It's like the old joke: What do you call a hundred lawyers at the bottom of the ocean?
    "A start."

    1. What do you call 10 lawyers up to their necks in sand? Not enough sand.

  4. This means more than legislation, but then again most of this is executive branch initiative, so our do nothing republicans qualify for little or no credit.

  5. We need a simultaneous effort by our do-nothing GOP friends to permanently roll this back with legislation that keeps the next Dem president from undoing this.

    "Regulation without representation"

    The un-elected bureaucracy must be tamed.

  6. "If after six months you still want Hillary president, please go read someone else's blog."

    gadfly, I think this means you.

  7. I'm surprised the flags in DC aren't at half-staff. Rules and regulations are the mother's milk of that cesspool.

  8. This comment has been removed by the author.

  9. If businessmen and women really knew how to run a business, they'd be working for the government. Seems obvious to me.

    Pure gold:

    The WSJ editorial (1992) is paywalled, but it's a beaut.

  10. This was what the Reagan Administration did to the New Deal. We know what happened.
